Tuscan break.Posted Sep 21, 2012
Pros: The general ambience of the hotel. The decor and style.
Cons: The hotel could have provided more tourist information ie train times, taxis,location map. Air conditioning not as efficient as it could have been.
Location: Good location for visiting various places in Tuscany.
Pleasant and efficient staff who were particularly helpful during a minor medical problem. The hotel met our expectations which we had formed from previous visitors comments on Trip Advisor.

BEST VALUE IN TUTTI DI ITALIAPosted Nov 9, 2011 on Hotels.com
My wife and I have made ten visits to Italy over the last 25 years and dollar for dollar this is the best hotel value of any we have stayed in and this includes 5* hotels on the Via Veneto in Rome. The staff here went out of their way on several occasions to assist us including spending more than two hours trying to get a Europcar machanic to tend to a problem we had with our car on the day of our departure. This hotel was recommended to us by a friend and client, a U. S. wine importer, who stays here when visiting his Italian producers. We would also recommend the Armonia Hotel and Pontedera as a base for visiting the surrounding Toscano area. It is within an hour of Lucca, a "don't miss" town and an hour by train to Firenze. The hotel itself is beautiful and makes you feel you are in Italy with its antique furniture and beautifully appointed rooms and is in the center of the main square of Pontedera. And for those who travel by car it has parking.

Lovely little hotel set in a quiet Tuscan townPosted Oct 11, 2011
Stayed for 4 nights as part of honeymoon trip round Italy. Proximity to station was a key factor, as we used the train everywhere - Florence, Pisa, Siena and Lucca are all very easy day-trips by train from Pontedera. Hotel was good value, room very adequately furnished, and the breakfast was splendid, with wonderful bread and pastries from the bakery across the road. Everything was so clean. My wife loved the little carpet rugs in the elevator which were changed every day, with "Sunday" or "Monday" etc, woven into them. Ornate interior as per photos. Staff were all very friendly, spoke good English and seemed to enjoy helping me with my basic Italian. The hotel is located in a quiet part of town, but just 2 minutes from the main street with restaurants, shops, banks etc. Note that Pontedera itself is not really a tourist town - there aren't walls, galleries & cathedrals to explore there (well, none that we got to know about), but as a base we found it perfect. The hotel is an easy 6-8 min walk from station (no hills), which we covered each day, and also with our wheel-on cases when arriving/leaving. Note - if you don't stay anywhere less than the Executive Floor of 5* major chain hotels, then this might not work for you, but for the price, we loved it! It was clean friendly, quiet, welcoming, and secure. We are both hoping to return!

Armonia - a gemPosted Aug 7, 2011 on Hotels.com
If you love French / Traditional architecture & style - the hotel to stay at! Absolutely stunning interiors & rooms in the heart of Pontedara, a 30-40 min ride from Pisa (and Pisa itself was just blah except for the Tower, so recommend you skip the town & staying there and head to this place instead). Great breakfast area, and a Cappucino machine from a throwback era.

Beautiful But Small RoomsPosted Jul 29, 2011 on Hotels.com
A very decent hotel in a good central location for sightseeing in Tuscany. A classic Italian hotel with very friendly staff (most with basic English). Our only disappointment was the size of our room it was the smallest superior room I have ever stayed in. Pontedera is a small town with a decent main shopping street, just beside the hotel.. Plenty of good cafes with great coffee but not too many quality restaurants. I would definitely stay at this hotel again mainly because of the great price through hotels.com. It was £100 cheaper than Late rooms for a 3 night stay.

The Hotel Armonia, Pontedera, Tuscany ItalyPosted Jul 25, 2011 on Hotels.com
Lovely hotel (but think mainly used for business stay overs) - quiet location but within walking distance of restaurants, bars and shops. No night clubs which suited us perfectly.

PONTEDERAPosted May 24, 2010
Nice location, lovely hotel, staff really helpfull and pleasant. on the train line for Florence (£9 return per adult). So you can enjoy wine and food and come back to the hotel without driving. also trains for the airport. The train station area is about 5-10 min walking distance. the hotel location is great, right in the town center. the train station area can look quite unsafe expecially at night
